Elementary TAKS test
Miss Sally Edwards is a highly esteemed third grade teacher at
Kootenai County Elementary. In an effort to prepare her students for
the all-important TAKS test, she compiled an exam consisting of 20
questions, which she administered to her class last Tuesday. The exam
purposely covered a broad array of topics.
I call your attention to question # 11, which simply read:
LIST, IN ANY ORDER, THE FOUR SEASONS:
1. ________ 2. ________ 3.________ 4. ________
Now, could you possibly imagine that 67% of the students gave
the following answer?
1. STEELHEAD SEASON
2. DEER SEASON
3. DUCK SEASON
4. ELK SEASON

Teach a lib to fish--he is back the next day asking for more free fish.
